Other Comments:
I enjoyed most all of my 17 years in the active duty Navy and in various reserve units.  My cruise on board the Coral Sea CVA 43 in the Gulf of Tonkin was a highlight. especially in Japan, Hong Hong, and Singapore.  I also feel an attachment to the US Marines, both on the Coral Sea and the 3 years I spent with them during my reserve time.   There are no greater & braver men than those that served in Viet Nam; where, but, by the grace of God, I missed, due to a field medical school injury.
